What does the Obutto oZone Base Cockpit come with?
RAID 0 (Striping) takes two drives of the same size and creates a bridge between them to make them act as one large drive. For example two 250GB drives would show up on the system as one large 500GB drive. This increases the speed of data being processed as it writes and reads across both drives. The downside is there is no data security. If one drive goes down in the RAID 0 configuration all data is lost as half is stored on one drive and the other half on the other. This is best used for situations where the data is not critical, but a speed performance increase may be desirable such as when using the machine for gaming.
RAID 1 (Mirroring) takes both drives and uses one to create a real time backup to the second. In this case two 250GB drives will show up as one 250GB drive. This is a good setup for those looking for data security as information put on the main drive of the RAID will immediately be copied over to the other drive as an exact match. You do lose some speed due to the extra processing, but allows for the data to be saved if one of the drives in the RAID go down. Simply replacing the defective drive will automatically rebuild the array over a short time.×

I had been looking for ergonomic chairs when I came across this item. At the prices some of the ergo office chairs are going for, this setup was a steal! I work & play in this seat, and have spent several hours per day in it. This is hands-down the most comfortable I've ever been in front of my computer screens. I'm a big guy, 6', over 250. No problem getting in & out of this, and I don't even have the seat all the way back.
Assembly was fun, as the unit doesn't come with instructions, but it really is fairly obvious how it all goes together. My only complaint is that the tolerances of the parts (how well they fit together) is a little lax, but the unit holds together fine, and where the fits aren't tight, it's barely noticeable. Once assembled, it's pretty solid.
They include an alan-key and a stamped crescent wrench. While the alan-key is fine, the wrench is rather a joke. I used my own crescent to do the work; less chance of it slipping off. Bolts/nuts are all standard-size (not metric). If you don't have the extra tools I'm sure the included one would work fine. Adjusting things like the table and keyboard platforms took some playing with, but with the large hand-knobs on the set-bolts this was fairly easy to get done, and they have stayed where I put them.
I did not mount the joystick arm, and I replaced the standard keyboard table arm with the more adjustable accessory arm because my space is limited. I also have the acrylic table top, as my primary use of this is for work and I needed more space to put stuff. I later added the triple-monitor mount as well, but I'll review those things elsewhere.
Ultimately, if you spend as much time as I do in front of your computer, you'll not be unhappy with this setup.

Easy to assemble, but the package is pretty large/bulky. You will likely need 2 people to move it around.
Only took about an hour to get it assembled, another half hour to run cables and finish the setup.
Doesn't move around on carpet, very comfy to sit in for long amounts of time. Great for racing as the pedals and wheel is fully adjustable, position wise. Fits the G27 perfectly.
Also works well as a normal desk setup, as I played quite a lot of Kerbal space program and banished in the setup as well.
Totally worth the price.

I think this cockpit is the best value for the money. I did a lot of research and this unit fit my needs better than anything else for the money I was willing to spend. Construction is of excellent quality and it is a very solid platform once put together. Although the instructions weren't all that great it still went together easily, especially with the help of the online videos on the website. I'm very happy with the seat, especially. I was expecting something of lesser quality for the money. It both reclines and is adjustable front-to-back which you don't often find in a budget cockpit. My only complaint about the seat is that for a guy my size (6'-2" 230 lbs) it's a little narrow but not uncomfortably so. I can still spend hours in the seat (with the help of a small pillow) with no problem. On weekends, it's not unusual for me to spend 8-10 hours per day in this seat.
Ultimately, I found the shifter mount and keyboard/mouse tray to not be to my liking so I made my own tabletop from plywood to hold a lamp, keyboard, wheel, shifter and mouse pad. Since I use this cockpit for general gaming and not just racing I needed something that felt more like a desk when not using my racing wheel and the keyboard/mouse tray was just not that comfortable for me to use. I also prefer my shifter to be mounted closer to my wheel than the shifter mount would allow so the homemade tabletop was the perfect solution. I was going to order the acrylic tabletop but thought that its 40" length would not be quite long enough (my tabletop is about 45-46"). It would be ideal if the mounts for shifter, keyboard, etc. were optional and if they could pass along the savings but, even though I will likely never use them, I still feel that, for the money, this is a terrific unit and I've already recommended it to several friends. One of my friends was thinking of building a custom home-made rig but after trying my Obutto Ozone he said he would buy this instead.

I am overall very pleased with the obutto ozone gaming cokcpit. Here are my Pro's and Con's
-Very solid, the construction of the rig is phenomenal. Very sturdy and very heavy. The package weighed in at 110 lbs.
-Easy construction. The rig was mostly self explanatory to put together but does require a quite a bit of space to assemble.
-The Seat. The seat is extremely comfortable. I have sat through several long races and different gaming and i have been very comfortable. This was one of the main things that i was worried about because i am a bigger guy.
-Price. For the price that you pay for this rig you cannot go wrong.
-No bar between your legs. This is one of the biggest reasons i purchased this rig over playseat and VRC rigs. **Plus for the price that you pay for those rigs, you can get more features with the obutto ozone**
-The keyboard and mouse tray. To be honest this was one of the main reasons i purchased this rig,the tray is covered with "mouse pad" material which i love. But with the steering wheel mounted on the rig it is very hard to navigate this over your legs. Which i stated before, i am a bigger guy so this could be one of the reasons but i think that the overall construction of the tray could be tweaked and made more accessible.
-The pedal and wheel stands. This is minor but i would have liked to had pre-drilled holes for the pedal and wheel stands.
-The Monitor Mount. Again this is one minor flaw to the rig but i would like it if the monitor stand would go a little higher. I have a 32" tv for my monitor and the stand has to be all the way extended for this to look right. Once again this is a minor detail.
In conclusion i would like to say that i am very impressed with this rig! It exceeded my expectations in some aspects but did have its flaws. If i had to purchase a rig all over again, i would not hesitate in buying this particular one. Great product.

This product is nothing short of amazing. Quality is great, chair is comfortable and it is sleak and smooth. Setup was easy, took me and hour and half and that was with spongebob on distracting me. I am using this as my personal desk/ office but mostly for gaming, and it is perfect for it. The most comfortable ive been when i have played. My friends and I play call of duty on the weekends and when we play it is usually a couple hours. I could not even tell this last weekend that i was in a chair for over 2 hours. My only problem was a fault of my own, i assumed that my monitor had all the holes for the mount but it didnt and i didnt know this until i was trying to mount the monitor( my monitor is only a year old) so i had to jimmy rig it a little. Went to lowes and got some roofing straps, their all pre drilled. I just built my own mount that went around the monitor and then i mounted it to my obutto ozone.....if your a gamer, this product is for you

This is probably the best rig for the money out there. Sturdy constriction, a comfortable seat, and multiple mounting options for the attachments make this a great value.
My only suggestions would be better instructions; that being said the way the Ozone goes together is pretty logical and not too difficult, but others may struggle.
My other gripe is with the monitor mount. The holes lined up perfectly with my monitors VESA mount, but the spot where the power cord plugs in was covered by the Ozone's mount. I simply drilled new holes in the mount to make some room for the cord. Once again, those not as technically savvy may find this a challenge.
All in all, this may have been the best investment I've made in my sim racing setup, and the fact that it can double as a normal workstation when not racing is just perfect for me.

Great sim for the price, very comfortable and sturdy. Same complaint as others about the keyboard but its not really an issue just preference. I actually didn't get the table top and drilled and taped the keyboard tray and mounted it behind the wheel until I come up with a better keyboard option. I would prefer a tilted keyboard tray off the right side so will probably buy a ram mount and go from there. Overall though its a 5 star product for the value and the overall strength of the cockpit. I would recommend to anyone!!!!

Vizio 50' 3d tv, pc, ps3, g27 and a cup holder to complete my corner of heaven. I gotta say, I thought this was over kill, expensive and maybe not that comfortable. It's hard to gauge a product online and get over petty complaints from certain people. Well let me tell you those people are wrong. It is not overkill as I'm only using an extra foot and a half of space. Expensive? Think about it, it's a desk with one of the best chairs you can possibly get. You can easily spend $400 in a crappy chair and desk and not have the level of comfort offered by this cockpit. Uncomfortable? Not at all. I read someone complaining about lumbar support... Buy a Memory Foam Lumbar pillow and that will fix that problem right up. Not everyone needs/wants that support. But if you do, very easily fixable. I waited too long to make the jump on something like this. It will change your gaming experience even if you are just playing FPS. Delivery was promised til the 27th as the cockpit was a pre-order item. It was delivered on the 12th and playing on it by the 14th. Good company, good product. You will not regret this purchase.
